This Is What A Saturday In Athens Is Like

When you go to school in the south, you learn to love football. Even if you've never taken any interest to it before. It's part of the culture. So, if you're thinking about going to UGA, here are what your fall Saturdays will look like in Athens.

College Colors

Giphy

The minute you step out of your residence hall, you will see everyone dressed up in Georgia's colors. You'll see little girls with cheerleading outfits and little boys with helmets. You'll see college girls dressed in their finest Georgia colors. There's nothing like a sea of red and black.

Tailgates

Giphy

Tailgates are a gameday necessity. They clear student parking lots to make room for tailgates. Along with the tailgates come the food. Everywhere you go, you get the smell of burgers and hot dogs. Even the Bolton Dining Commons serves them.

Parking

There is none.

The Tradition

Giphy

Graduates will take pictures walking under the arch and you'll hear the constant ringing of the chapel bell. You'll see alumni everywhere partaking in old traditions and visiting their favorite places around campus.

Uga

He's only the greatest college mascot in the country.

Sanford Stadium

Giphy

Make sure to get to the game early, to see the before-kickoff traditions that make you proud to be a Georgia Bulldog. If you're lucky enough to attend a night game, you'll get to see my favorite Sanford Stadium tradition: light up Sanford. At the beginning of the fourth quarter, the entire stadium turns on their phone lights as the band plays Krypton.

Dawg Fans

Giphy

No matter where you go in Athens, you'll be sure to run into a fan shouting "Go Dawgs"

And the only correct response is....

Go Dawgs!

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.
